4 History of Haiti CAPITAL - PORT AU PRINCE MAIN ROADS DIVISION BORDER Haiti, officially the Republic of Haiti, is a Caribbean country located between Cuba and Puerto Rico, 600 miles off the southeast coast of Florida. Haiti occupies the western third of the large island of Hispaniola, which it shares with the Dominican Republic. This island was one of the first places at which Columbus landed during his epic voyages of the 1490s. The name Haiti is believed to have been taken from an old Arawak Indian word for land of mountains as the terrain is mostly mountainous. The Republic of Haiti includes three large offshore islands- Gonâve, Tortué, and Île à Vache. Its shape is similar to a crab s claw whose pinchers are aimed towards Cuba. Haiti s capital is Port-au-Prince, which is located in the middle of the claw opening. At the end of the 16th century, France challenged Spain for control and in 1697, the Spanish ceded the western half of the island to France. The French turned their new territory into a center for slave trade. After a successful slave rebellion in 1804, Haiti became the first independent nation in Latin America and the first black-led republic in the world. During the rest of the 19th century, Haiti was under the control of a succession of dictators. Early in the 20th century the U.S. took control of Haiti; for the next 30 years, Haiti was a U.S. protectorate. It was not returned to local rule until after World War II. Elections in 1957 brought Dr. Francis Duvalier, a country physician, to power. He was known as Papa Doc and presided over a vicious authoritarian regime. With the help of a private militia known as the Tontons Macoutes (a Creole

5 phrase for bogeymen ), political dissent was eradicated and opponents were jailed or murdered. Duvalier died in 1971 and his son, Jean Claude Duvalier, known as Baby Doc, presided over Haiti. Jean Claude ruled much like his father for the next 15 years but was forced to flee the country in 1986 when political opposition finally turned against the regime. Several military governments followed before Haiti transitioned to civilian rule. Despite the presence of peacekeepers and the return of the U.S. military troops in 1994, violence and turmoil continued in Haiti. In 1996, René Préval was elected as president for a five-year term with 88% of the popular vote. Upon his 1996 inauguration, Préval became only the second democratically elected head of state in the country s 200-year history. In 2001, he became only the second president of Haiti to leave office as a result of the natural expiration of his term. In February 2006, René Préval once again took the presidency. He served his second term from May 2006 until On April 4, 2011, Michel Martelly, better known as Sweet Micky, stepped in as Haiti s newly elected President. Martelly quickly formed an advisory board that included business executives, bankers, and politicians such as former President of the United States Bill Clinton, in hopes of improving business and the economy. He continued to work toward keeping peace in the country, and rebuilding the country from the horrific earthquake of 2010, which killed an estimated 300,000 individuals and left over one million others homeless. In 2012, Haiti was named the poorest country in the world, with a poverty rate of 77%. The devastation of the earthquake on January 12, 2010 nearly destroyed the capital city of Port-au-Prince and much of the surrounding area. At the end of President Martelly s term, Jocelerme Privert took office as a provisional President in the wake of delayed elections and established a temporary government. It was during this time, October 2016, that Hurricane Matthew devastated much of Haiti. Many 410 Bridge communities were affected and lost virtually everything - loved ones, schools, homes, churches, crops, livestock and livelihoods. The 410 Bridge was quick to respond, thanks to the generosity of individuals and churches who support our work. Post Hurricane Matthew, Haiti finally held Presidential elections in November Jovenel Moise won the election with more than 50% of the vote. President-elect Moise is set to assume office on Feb. 7, 2017.

6 Climate Conditions Haiti has a generally hot and humid tropical climate, although weather can vary considerably due to the geographical features which include mountains, valleys, plateaus and plains. November through March is Haiti s dry season. January is typically the driest month of the year in Haiti. The rainy season is April through October, with May usually being the wettest month. Being a Caribbean nation, tropical storms and hurricanes are an annual threat. Cash & Currency There are only a few instances where you may need to use cash. It is not necessary to exchange money in Haiti, U.S. currency is accepted. Tipping: Your U.S. team leader or 410 Bridge staff will handle most tips while you are in Haiti. Your team leader or The 410 Bridge staff will have funds to tip the drivers at the end of your journey. Please do not tip The 410 Bridge staff and do not give money to any other individuals you meet. Tipping is not typical in restaurants. Tipping luggage porters is also not standard practice for most hotels in our communities. Tithing: You will likely visit a local church on a Sunday of your trip, where providing an offering of U.S. $1-2 is considered appropriate. The local currency equivalent is Gourdes in Haiti. Souvenirs: Locally made crafts will be available for purchase at various times during your trip. If you plan to purchase items in the community, you will need small bills. Currency: Haiti s currency is the Gourde, which has a variable exchange rate. Visitors will notice that some establishments price items in an unofficial currency known at the Haitian Dollar (one Haitian dollar is equivalent to approximately five Gourdes). Other vendors give prices in Gourdes or even in U.S. dollars. It is always a good idea to clarify which currency is being used in a given transaction as price tags often bear a number without indicating the currency. Currency Exchange: Converting currency in Haiti is not necessary. Most vendors gladly accept U.S. dollars. We recommend bringing U.S. currency in $1, $5, and $10 for use. Please do not rely on using credit/debit cards or ATM. We do not recommend using Traveler s Checks in Haiti.

7 Internet & Electricity Electricity can be sporadic in developing countries, and is not guaranteed on your trip. Please keep in mind that generators are often used and are not typically on during the day. Standard three-prong electrical outlets are used. Converters and adaptors are not needed. To ensure that you always have access to light in the evenings, you may consider bringing a battery powered flashlight or headlamp. Wireless Internet access may be limited or completely unavailable due to location and schedule. Visas Entry & Exit In Haiti, you will need a $10 bill to pay your entrance fee at Immigration. Entry Requirements Upon entering Haiti, you will be required to show your passport and pay a U.S. $10 fee to enter the country. This can only be paid in cash, and preferably with a crisp $10 bill. Exit Requirement You should also receive a green entry/exit document to fill out with information to be provided to you on your flight in. The address you will need to include on your green entry/exit document is: The 410 Bridge Guesthouse Tabarre 42-Rue Fleurant #15 Tabarre, Haiti W.I.
